Default Tyre Choice

Hi all,
I've put on new tyres this morning, Kenda - semi off-road as I do 80%+ tar driving.
Check out the pictures and give me your opinions / experience.

R580, fitted - have been told to take it easy for the 1st 100km's to get the wax off, after that I should be able to supply some comment.

For now, I'm happy and they ride nice.

Thusfar, no reason not to like them - need more distance to give accurate report.

They do look nice on the bike and provides a great deal of comfort in knowing new/good tyre is on the rim.

Those kenda K761's are nice. Currently got a Kenda K720 and love it although a bit squirmy if you push it hard in the corners. Here the 761 will perform better as the 720 is more a 50/50 tyre.

Question Re: Tyre Choice

Hi KLeaR,
Still happy with the Kenda?
I've done just over 5000kms and I suppose I will need to change my rear tyre soon.

I'm alarmed that the front seems to be wearing about as quickly as the rear.
Cheers
